Our current residency program, led by Program Director Dr. Sanaz Behnia, provides a balanced and in-depth experience in all aspects of the basic sciences and clinical practice of nuclear medicine imaging and therapy. For more information, visit our Nuclear Medicine Residency Program webpage.

Doximity’s Methodology for Measurement of Research Output:  

“Doximity profile data of U.S. physicians was used to calculate research output score for each residency program’s current residents and recent alumni base. This score was calculated from a combination of the collective h-index of publications authored by alumni graduating within the past 10 years, the ratio of current residents and recent graduates publishing, as well as research grants awarded and participation in clinical trials. Each program’s alumni research output was then compared to all other programs within the same specialty to create a percentile score. Research Output may be refreshed periodically to account for new alumni publication and clinical trial data. These updates may affect the Research Output sort order.”
